COBB COUNTY, Ga. —
A unique offer from a local jewelry store is getting a lot of attention.
D. Geller and Son is giving away a free gun to customers who buy a diamond.
Owner Mike Geller said he got the idea, after seeing a similar offer at a Missouri car dealership.
Geller’s promotion offers a free hunting rifle, if you buy a diamond worth $2,499 or more.
Already, Geller says the offer is generating a lot of buzz.
“It’s unbelieveable! There’s websites that got a million hits about it,” Geller said.
“It’s interesting. It’s appealing to the men, I think” said one Cobb County woman who didn’t think it was a bad idea.
But another woman who worried about safety told Channel 2’s Sophia Choi “I think it’s stupid.”
Geller said “you don’t just come in here, buy a diamond and grab a gun.”
Instead, those who qualify will receive a voucher for Adventure Outdoors in Smyrna.
"That way you have to qualify, you have to follow all the rules and regulations in the state of Georgia to own a gun,” Geller said.
Geller said the Missouri dealership that had a similar promotion ran out of cars and had to offer rain checks.
Geller doubts he’ll run out of diamonds, but said he expects the promotion to bring in a lot of people.
“A lot of our customers are hunters, and it just seemed like a great thing to do," added Geller.
